Hello all, a bit new to all this so any advice would be appreciated. 2 weeks ago I bought a bottle of Prime and Stability to cycle my new tank. For the first week I added Stability as indicated on the bottle. I didn't add any additional ammonia source except for plants. A week later I went to my aquarium and they said I should have treated the water with Prime before adding stability and that I needed to add an extra source of ammonia. Rookie error. So I added Prime to my tank and added 2 ppm of liquid ammonia. I've been dosing stability again for a week now but my ammonia stays constant and no trace of nitrites or nitrates after 1 week. My questions are, should I continue to add stability past the 7 day mark? Should I empty my tank and start again? Or is this just normal and I should stop adding additional Stability and give the tank time for the bacteria to grow and wait for nitrites to appear? Many thanks!
